AIIM's Leadership Sessions for professionals involved on the Executive Leadership Council membership level

The AIIM Executive Leadership Council brings together top thinkers, high performance practitioners and leaders in information management to discuss, define, and direct the Future of Information Management.  The Council itself is made up of AIIM solution provider and user companies at the Executive Council membership level. 

Annual summits create a shared space for dynamic conversations to determine the role of the content and information management industry in a new era of business which addresses Social, Mobile and Cloud computing. The AIIM Executive Leadership Council has two goals:

  1. Articulate the impact that these new technologies will have on the workplace
  2. Define specific use cases for how the technologies can transform organizations and ways of work.

The Executive Leadership Council has two delegations, the Americas and European.  Each delegation meets twice a year to addresses two key themes. Their findings are published as AIIM Trendscape reports which forecast the changes our industry will incur over the next 24 months and set priorities to take advantage of these changes.

"The AIIM ELC brings together some of the finest minds across multiple industries for insightful discussion concerning real-world business problems.” Butch Reh, VP of Licensing and Marketing, ABBYY USA

2016 Future of Information Management Summit Series


Infonomics – How do you measure the value of information

Washington DC, June 15-16 for the Americas Council
London, June 23 for the European Council

“War is 90% information”. It is an asset that can be used to identify new opportunities, add value, manage risks, and reduce costs. But how should we measure the value of information?

Best-selling author Geoffrey Moore claims there are now two centers of value creation; improved customer intimacy and operational excellence. Information about customers allow us to better engage them with personalized communication and services. Information about employee allows us to improve productivity by better connecting people, information, and knowledge. We can automate transactional processes, and provide knowledge workers with the right information at the right time. We can also reduce risks and costs by automating information management compliance, security, and privacy. If these are some of the opportunities, how do we then best measure the economical value of information management?

Join us to elevate the discussion around the value of information and how organizations can start to measure the value of their information. As a leadership think tank, we’ll examine:

  • How do you measure the value of information management?
  • How do make infonomics a top concern of CXO’s?
  • What are the first steps for treating information as an asset?

Appification of Content Management - Content Centric Apps

Barcelona, December 1-2 for the European Council
Southern California, December 13-14 for the Americas Council

The Enterprise IT market is being disrupted by cloud, mobile, consumerization, and soon Internet of Things. IT investments are changing from IT to Business, and Gartner claims that the business currently controls 35% of IT investments, but this will change to 90% by 2020.

Consumer IT is impacting how buyers evaluate enterprise IT – they want, according to R Wang from Constellation Group, solutions that are simple, sexy, smart, scalable, secure, and safe. Business leaders and users want a solution, not a project. They want it now, not tomorrow. They just want an app that meets their business and system requirements. Sometimes this is an out-of-the-box app, other times it is unique apps built on a common enterprise platform.

The cloud platform war between Amazon, Microsoft, Google - and to some extent Salesforce - is also starting to impact our industry. Customers will increasingly get enterprise app stores, which will open up new opportunities for selling apps that solve specific needs.

As a leadership think tank, we’ll explore:

  • How will content centric apps impact the ECM industry?
  • Who are the vertical and horizontal opportunities and stakeholder?
  • What does your business need to provide to continue to grow due to this trend?
